Executive Agents of the Month



Written by Haley Freeman - Photography by Ian Wiant

ew real estate professionals possess such comprehensive knowledge, professionalism and influence as does Debra Kovacs, leader of the highly acclaimed Kovacs Connection Team at Century 21 Award. Together with her daughter, Lauren Kovacs, Debra and her team are the premier choice in Orange County for those seeking both integrity and excellence in their real estate representation.

Debra first entered real estate to buy and flip investment properties, a business practice she continues today. However, it wasn’t long before she discovered that she had both a talent and a passion for the business, and she extended her expertise to helping clients with home transactions throughout Orange County. Debra is also a gifted interior design professional who previously owned and operated a design center, and has designed new home interiors for homebuyers and private clients for the past 30 years.

Debra’s expertise in the Orange County home market is unrivaled. She has amassed an impressive array of awards for her outstanding service and production, and is recognized among the top one percent of Realtors® worldwide. She is a Certified Relocation Professional (CRP); a Fine Homes and Estates Specialist; and a Home Staging Specialist. As much as her professional know-how, it is Debra’s outstanding character and caring service that bring clients back to her time and again. One commented: “I have worked with Debra Kovacs for over 15 years, and she is the only real estate agent I trust to handle my personal transactions. Her professional and caring approach to clients and meeting our needs, particularly during times of transition and change, help to make the process easier on everyone. It takes great negotiation skills to keep real estate transactions together, and in that regard, there is no one better than Debra Kovacs!” After spending many years as a top-producing, solo

agent, Debra decided to share her experience and assemble a team equipped to assist a greater number of clients with her same commitment to integrity and excellence. It was only natural that Lauren would become her partner, bringing her own industry expertise in lending, title and property management, as well as her youthful enthusiasm and strong community advocacy. Lauren is a licensed Realtor® who, in addition to working with buyers and sellers, heads up the team’s marketing and social media presence. She is well-known throughout Rancho Santa Margarita and South Orange County, where she spends time networking and supporting community events. “I think part of what makes us a great team is our blend of old-school values and a new way of doing business,” Debra says. “We complete each other. I started in real estate with a pager and a Thomas Guide, and I had up to 6 listing appointments a day. Lauren brings her knowledge of social media marketing and technology that are essential in today’s market.”
